This doctor's most compassionate and caring provider I have ever experienced. He is so patient make sure that you understand medical options and consequences. Extremely well first and lose your history personal and otherwise like the back of his hand. Up in the doctors but they don't even remember what I'm married or not. This doctor knows my family history and ask me things that shows that he remembers quite well who I am respects a dignity and my self worth. I will go to another doctor. I know my health interests are best served with him, and I trust him 100%.

First went to a Nurse Practitioner who gave me pain killers for my sciatic nerve complaint, as I requested, without much investigation into the pain issue in my leg. My next visit was with Dr. Oomann, who double checked my pain complaints of a sciatic nerve Issue. Physically checking my leg, he came to another conclusion and choice of treatment, which has helped much more. The NP did as I requested, Dr. Oomann walked the extra mile with extra care and physically checking my leg, and coming to another conclusion. His taking a few more steps made the difference.

Recently moved to Texas. Was anxious about finding a new provider as I'd had the same primary care provider for over 20 years in the state I had moved from. Chose to see Dr Oomen based on recommendation from staff at Walgreens as we were not familiar with any doctors in this area. I saw Dr Oomen for the first time yesterday and I have to say that it was an excellent experience! He was wonderful. My anxiety about seeing someone new was quickly put to rest. He was very kind, very thorough and seemed genuinely concerned for my well being. I look forward to continuing to see him for my medical care in the future.

This was the best experience I have had with at BSW and I am going to schedule my husband with him to establish with Dr. Oommen as his PCP as well. I hope we can continue to see him for many years since he very clearly cares about patients and is exactly what we have been looking for in a PCP.

He also reviewed gaps in care for my son, and told us what was due. Very pleased with the doctor visit. The nurse that checked us in could have shown more kindness and been more personable. She didn't say much didn't smile much and seemed to be burnt out with her tasks. She didn't go above or beyond at all.
